What is the Advanced Course?

The advanced course is designed to help students advance their English towards proficiency level. At this stage in their English learning, the most important thing for advanced speakers is to further widen their vocabulary.  This is therefore the main focus of the course.  Phrasal verbs and idioms are often neglected by teachers until students reach advanced level, so the philosophy at englishtenses.eu is to really work on vocabulary using interesting articles and in-depth discussions about current topics. Fluency of conversation is also important, and whether it is a private lesson or a group lesson, discussions form the main basis of the live lessons, while vocabulary and grammar exercises are often given as homework. Grammar is not neglected, and another focus of the course is to really perfect students' grammar in both spoken and written language, and make students confident with using complicated sentence structures with ease.

 Advanced Group  Courses

Group advanced courses can be very fun for students as offer a great opportunity for learners to speak with classmates from all over the world.  As English is a truly global language, getting used to other accents is very important, and group classes offer this opportunity.  It also presents students with a chance to discuss current topics in depth with people from very different backgrounds, whilst improving language by learning from each other's mistakes. The size of the groups in the advanced group courses is usually 4, although sometimes it is less.  All students taking part in the course will be of advanced level - the teacher of the course has a chance in the demo lesson to make sure that everyone's English is at the level needed to take part.   If at any point a student feels that the level of the group is too high or too low for them, the teacher can offer the opportunity to change to a different class.   

 Advanced Private  Courses

With so much 1-1 time with a native speaker, private advanced courses offer a student a real opportunity to really push their English to the next level.  The real advantage of the private courses is that students can get so much feedback on their conversation, and grammar mistakes that they make. It also allows for more intensive vocabulary drills, which is usually the main area that advanced students need to improve in order to start using English like a real native.  The great thing about the private course is that if you would like to follow the course at a slower pace, you can extend the course to however long you would like it. Also, if an article or discussion is not going to be to your interest, the teachers are trained to adapt materials and exercises to your preferences and individual learning style.
